Then I said, "Ah Lord GOD! They are saying of me, 'Is he not just speaking parables?'"
I have also spoken to the prophets, And I gave numerous visions, And through the prophets I gave parables.
I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old,
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: "I WILL OPEN MY MOUTH IN PARABLES; I WILL UTTER THINGS HIDDEN SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD."
